Grief and the Holidays – Rev. Deb Mechley

“Grief is surrounding my Holidays” and I ask, “What do I do now?”
Sadness feels sadder and loneliness goes deeper. The need for support may be the greatest during the holidays. Pretending you don’t hurt or it is not a harder time of year is just not the truth of you. The truth is, time does heal. Time simply arranges us in the direction of our healing journey. You can and will get through the holidays. Rather than avoiding the feelings of grief, lean into them… It’s not the grief you want to avoid, it’s the pain. Am I right? Grief is the way out of the pain. There are a number of ways to incorporate your loved one and your loss into the holidays. Tune in for ways to cope, and trust what shows up for you and BE with that.

Spiritual Care Advisor and Grief Support Specialist for Hospice Advantage will be sharing her wisdom on this important subject.

Chia Vitality – Janie Hoffman https://www.hightail.com/download/UlRUQ1Z0RkVmVGJLd01UQw

For centuries, chia seeds were revered by both the Maya and Aztecs for their amazing energy and natural healing powers. Today, it’s no wonder that chia is one of the hottest superfoods around: Gram for gram, it has 70 percent more protein than soybeans, 25 percent more fiber than flaxseed, 30 percent more antioxidants than blueberries, 600 percent more calcium than milk, and is the richest known source of plant-based Omega-3s. Reaping the nutritional benefits of chia can be as simple as mixing a tablespoon into a smoothie or tossing it on a salad—but that is just the beginning!

In Chia Vitality, Mamma Chia founder Janie Hoffman shows how integrating chia into your diet can boost your stamina, help you lose weight, and feel more alive than ever before.
